Levy wants Redknapp to make major Spurs signing


Harry Redknapp has revealed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants him to make a major signing in the January transfer window.

Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League, just five points behind leaders Manchester United. Levy wants Spurs to keep in the race for the title and is willing to back his manager.

“The owner would like me in all honesty to go and spend his money and buy somebody who could make the difference,” he said. “But I don’t know where that player is. I know where they are but they’re not for sale – we can’t go and buy the people that you’d put your life on.

“Anybody whose got anybody who’s real top class, they don’t want to sell them at this stage of the season. We’re not in the situation where we need to panic buy. Unless it’s somebody who’s going to make a difference to the team then we really wouldn’t bother.

“We’ve got good players. We’ve got players that are getting better, which is great. (Gareth) Bale, what a year he’s had. Luka Modric, he’s just been incredible. You’ve got (Rafael) van der Vaart here now who’s come in and, when he’s been fit and playing, has just been fantastic.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. would love use to sign Sime Vrsaljko 18 year old RB-RM love the look of this guy great pace looks like a mature head on a young body looks up before he crosses would be a good back up for aaron lennon just for 5 mill have a look at him on you tube i know that you olny see the best of the player when you watch youtube but he dont half look like a top top player

  2. Ding ding and so starts the stupid month of gossip amongst the football faithful well if everyone is chucking in their tuppence worth then here’s mine think he was number 11 for Ghana can’t remember his name Gervinho I think him shouldn’t hurt too much in the coffers either or Luis Suarez who will hurt in the pocket or and I know it sounds maybe crazy but what about Jan Klaas Huntelarr it’s not as daft as it sounds really because the lad certainly knows how to score plus he’s been off most radars for a while now admittedly because he’s not been prolific in his scoring but that’s mostly because he’s on the bench most time but when he is getting time on the pitch he’s contributing plus his countryman VDV is already at the club and we might get him at a price which is gonna be tempting to both buyer and seller 12 million might just do it. Think he’s cup tied for the champs league but ok so what. Undoubtedly this guy will score goals especially in our set up Bale tearing it up on the left Lennon on the right Defoe and Huntelaar up front I think that really could work for us in my humble opinion but as I said it’s silly season so next week it could be someone completely different. Much better than east Enders and a little bit more believable eh. Lillywhitetilidie.

  3. Suarez? Forget it – he’s an idiot and has reached his level in thr dutch league. Overweight and unfit – he’ll be a waste of smeone’s £15m, i hope it isnt ours. Huntelaar is a possibility – he backed the wrong horse when signing for Schalke, despite their decent CL showing. He hs struggled in he big leagues – both spain and italy, so there’s no guarantees. Carrol – forget it. A flash in the pan who may well be in jail later this year. He’s dismally slow as well, as evidenced at WHL eariler this week. If we are going to go big, how about a lifeline for Torres?

  4. eto'o inter r doi crap and he will go, he will win league 4 us and i can guarantee from watching so many games of his that he is a champion. 30 million and deal done.
